A mother and young daughter pose for their portait at the the J. M. Webb studio in Columbiana, Ohio. The daughter is cute and she has one hand affectionately placed on her mother's shoulder and her other hand on a thick photographic album. Note the girl's long frizzy hair. The photographer of this image is John M. Webb (1850-1942). He was born in Greenford, Ohio. He took over his father's (George G. Webb) photography business and operated it from 1884 to at least 1900.

A YOUNG GIRL AND HER PUG POSE IN ALTOONA, PENNSYLVANIA

A young girl sits on a chair, hands folded on her lap, and dreamily looks at the camera. Sitting alongside her is her trusty  pug. Actually, the dog may not be that trusty because the dog is wearing a collar and chain insuring that he stays in range of the camera. The young girl is holding the dog's leash. This photograph was taken at the Kottmann studio in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Edward Kottmann was a German born photographer who received his training at galleries in Philadelphia. He began working as a photographer in Altoona in about 1883. An advertisement announcing the sale of his gallery appears in Sap Shots (1908).

THE ROTHSCHILD PARK TROLLEY AND TWO CONDUCTORS IN WAUSAU, WISCONSIN

This wonderful vintage photograph gives us a view of an important mode of transportation in America's past. The Rothschild Park trolley was operated by the Wausaw Electric Railway. This photograph features a trolley car and two uniformed conductors. In 1906 the Wausau Street Railway Company was organized to bring electric transportation to Wausau. Sometime around 1915 the railway became the Wisconsin Valley Merrill Railway and Lighting Company. Note the sign stating "Rothschild Park" on the front of the trolley car. The story of Rothschild Park is quite interesting. The park was located, unsurprisingly, in Rothschild, Wisconsin which was about six miles from Wausau. Rothschild Park was owned by the Wausau Electric Railway and must have been quite a fun place to visit. The park offered 40 acres of water, islands and land. Attractions included a roller coaster, dance floor, catering hall, and more. In 1912 it cost ten cents to get to the park from Wausau. The photographer of this terrific image is unknown.
